District Attorney General Steve Bebb contends allegations of wrongdoing against him and his office are unfounded and are simply political in nature.

"I have not broken any laws of violated any rules of ethics," Bebb said Tuesday morning. "I will stand my ground."

Bebb furthermore said he is proud of his 10th Judicial District staff, which prosecutes cases in Monroe, McMinn, Polk and Bradley counties.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press recently published a lengthy investigative series that highlighted allegations of prosecutorial misconduct and misuse of public money by Bebb and his office.

The Chattanooga paper's investigation said Bebb drove a seized drug car, claiming taxpayer reimbursement for travel in the vehicle. The series of articles further said prosecutors had withheld evidence in criminal cases and stated there had been unchecked spending by the former 10th District Drug Task Force chief.
